Deactivate objects

This topic describes the INACT command and its parameters. The INACT command is used to deactivate:

  • Sentinel tracking object
  • CRON object
Note This command cannot be applied to partners whose definition was provided or modified by a directory EXIT.

A partner that has been deactivated by the INACT command can only be reactivated using the ACT command.

The INACT command also can:

  • Interrupt transfers in progress
  • Deactivate modes (requester or server)

When a partner is deactivated, transfers awaiting processing are:

  • suspended in requester mode
  • refused in server mode

The state of a transfer request awaiting execution in requester mode for a deactivated partner remains D, with a diagnostic code 430 and a protocol diagnostic INACT.

The state of a transfer request awaiting execution in server mode for a deactivated partner remains D, with a diagnostic code 930 and a protocol diagnostic RCO 312, or ABO 312 if the session is already open.

The state of transfers that are interrupted by an INACT command when FORCE=YES is H, with a diagnostic code 121 and a protocol diagnostic OPER.
